RE: I'm Sick...
Sorry to hear of your malady. Sounds serious enough to see a doctor. Don't fuck around with intestinal issues, they've put me in the hospital.

RE: I'm Sick...
You have Gastroenteritis, (the "stomach flu"). In a healthy young person like you, it will last about a week, maybe a bit more, but if it already "moved" down, you're rather lucky, so it could be shorter. Ususually in the evening, on the day before it goes away, it "lifts" for a few hours, (goes away), and you think you are better. Then it comes back for a few hours, and you're done with it. Just be kind to yourself, and sleep. That's all there is to do, and it's most likely not a bacteria. You might want to call the nurse line from your insurance company, or the triage nurse from your doctor's office. , and review your symptoms with them, but there really isn't much to do, but wait it out. Have you tried Ibuprofen, (Motrin) for the pain ? Google the BRAT diet, and do it. Drink potassium containing drinks, (cranberry juice, as you need potassium), and chop up a banana and eat it slowly. (They have a lot of potassium). Oh, and suck on popcycles. Thay have sugar, and water and will keep you hydrated.
That will be $10.00. Tongue

Well, I already knew 90% of that, so $5.00 is my limit. Sleepy (Sorry) Big Grin

It has "lifted", as you said. The intestinal pain has gone away considerably and my appetite returned. But you better be wrong about it coming back! Angry (I'll pay you the full 10 if it does) Yes
